Looking to meet a friend who lives uptown "halfway" for dinner; that leaves us at about 66 St, give or take some. I never eat in that area (understandably?) but we hope to find a compromise restaurant with chowish food, good drinks (the 1st being my priority, the 2nd, hers...) and casual ambience where we won't be rushed. Oh yeah, and hopefully less than 80 bucks or so, total. Will most likely be a weeknight on the early side.
